These prokaryotes are infiltrating our children’s literature…

Apparently, you’re never too young to have your mind blown by prokaryotes

I just found a children’s book about microbes called Tiny Creatures: The World of Microbes! It doesn’t help that its accompanied with lovely illustrations of their microbial greatness:


And there’s more. Apparently, those great Vibrios (remember those pesky Marxist poster bacterium for quorum sensing?) feature in another very cute book: The Squid, the Vibrio and the Moon.


So now they are a children’s role model or something? (Don’t even try to tell me the story is about the squid.)


Is nothing sacred anymore? CONJUGATE YOU!
